I'm trying to connect to a Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse database with Jetbrains DataGrip. Oracle provides me with a wallet file (a zip), with contains tnsnames.ora, a keystore, ojdbc.properties, and some other files.

I'm having a lot of trouble using this information to connect to the database using DataGrip. I found a thread on the DataGrip support forums, but I'm not having any luck with that either.

Jetbrains support thread: https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360001792539-Connect-with-Oracle-Cloud
Relevant Oracle documentation: https://docs.oracle.com/en/cloud/paas/autonomous-data-warehouse-cloud/adwud/connect-using-client-application.html

What I did:
1. Created the 'TNS_ADMIN' environment variable and set it to:
C:\\Users\\xxx\\Documents\\[folder with wallet files]
2. Added the Oracle JDBC driver files (ojdbc8.jar, osdt_cert.jar, oraclepki.jar, osdt_core.jar) to the standard Oracle driver in DataGrip
3. edited the 'sqlnet.ora' file to include the path to the wallet files
4. Added the following to the Data Source VM Options:

-Doracle.net.tns_admin=C:\\Users\\xxx\\Documents\\[folder with wallet files]
  1. Set connection type to URL only
  2. Tried different connection strings in the URL field:

jdbc:oracle:thin:@//adb.eu-frankfurt-1.oraclecloud.com:1522/xxxxxx_adw1_high.adwc.oraclecloud.com?TNS_ADMIN=C:\\Users\\xxx\\Documents\\[folder with wallet files]

jdbc:oracle:thin:@xxxxxx_adw1_high.adwc.oraclecloud.com?TNS_ADMIN=C:\\Users\\xxx\\Documents\\[folder with wallet files]



Connection to ADW1 failed.  
[08006][17002] IO Error: Got minus one from a read call, connect lapse 32 ms.,  
Authentication lapse 0 ms.  

I have also tried using the 'Service name' and 'TNS' connection types and filled in the info from tnsnames.ora. No dice, same error.

Also tried explicitely setting the 'tcp.validnode_checking' parameter to null.

(The connection works fine with sqldeveloper)

What's the proper way to do this?

  • Have you tries fill paths to key/trus strore?

  • Good suggestion. Tried it (also with quotes around the path, and also without the backslashes escaped), to no avail...

  • Please try to go to Data Source VM Options and put there full path to key/trus store. Something like -Djavax.net.ssl.trustStore=C:\full_path\truststore.jks

  • @moscas That was the answer, thanks. To clarify the full settings for anyone having the same problem, here are the settings to use in the new datasource screen: In 'VM Options' add these lines: -Doracle.net.tns_admin=C:\\path\\to\\wallet -Djavax.net.ssl.trustStore=C:\\path\\to\\wallet\\truststore.jks -Djavax.net.ssl.trustStorePassword=<wallet pw> -Djavax.net.ssl.keyStore=C:\\path\\to\\wallet\\truststore.jks -Djavax.net.ssl.keyStorePassword=<wallet pw> -Doracle.net.ssl_server_dn_match=true -Doracle.net.ssl_version=1.2 In Options -Check 'Introspect schema with JDBC metadata'

  • In 'General' -Use TNS connection type -Field 'TNSADMIN' -> Make sure the full path to tnsnames.ora is filled in -Field 'TNS name' -> Everything after '=' in tnsnames.ora (including braces) -Field 'User' -> Fill in schema username -Field 'Password' -> Fill in schema password

DataGrip 2021.1 provides Oracle 21.1 JDBC driver with all required jar files.

Read DataGrip help about Oracle connection using wallets.

There are some additional Oracle references.
